Photo Mania: Jurassic World, Into the Woods, Big Hero 6, and More
Hello everyone! Today’s Photo Mania is full of upcoming releases worth mentioning. Not only does it feature one of next year’s biggest movies (Jurassic World), two Disney films (Into the Woods and Big Hero 6), but it features a few notable releases in September (The Drop and A Walk Among the Tombstones), too. Rounding things out, I have photos for the comedy St. Vincent and the thriller John Wick.
Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) starts us off with a sadder picture as he tweeted out a bronze statue of Richard Attenborough’s John Hammond character. Attenborough unfortunately passed away this week. Although it may be sad, it is cool to see they had an homage to his character in the first place. Jurassic World hits theaters June 12, 2015 and is toplined by Chris Pratt. (Source: Twitter)
A little bit earlier than Jurassic World but still a bit off is Disney’s Into the Woods musical adaptation. Rob Marshall (Nine) directed a cast that includes Meryl Streep (featured in the photo above), Emily Blunt (Looper), Johnny Depp, and many more. Check for this one starting December 25th.

Speaking of Disney, I found two new photos for the Disney/Marvel collaboration Big Hero 6. Don Hall and Chris Williams (Bolt) co-directed the animated film that’ll voice star Ryan Potter (Nickelodeon’s Supah Ninjas), Scott Adsit (NBC’s 30 Rock), and Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch). Check out the two photos before Big Hero 6 graces theaters November 7th. (Source: Collider)
Our first gallery today is for Michael R. Roskam’s (Bullhead) The Drop. This one has the distinction of being James Gandolfini’s final film after his unfortunate passing and he’s joined by Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace (Prometheus). Check out the photos for the crime drama below before the film drops (ha ha) on September 12th. (Source: Collider)
Next up is A Walk Among the Tombstones. We were sent over ten photos for the film adaptation of Lawrence Block’s novel. Tombstones features Liam Neeson and Dan Stevens (ITV’s Downton Abbey). Scott Frank’s (The Lookout) crime drama comes out a week after The Drop on September 19th.
I also wanted to share the three photos I have for the comedy St. Vincent. Theodore Melfi directed the pic that most notably stars Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy. St. Vincent tells the story of an unconventional babysitter (Murray), so it definitely has come potential. Check out the movie on October 24th. (Source: IMDb)
Lastly, I have the first look at John Wick starring Keanu Reeves. Reeves will play a retired hitman on the wrong end of a set-up. David Leitch makes his directorial debut alongside Chad Stahelski in the action thriller set to release October 24th, too. Check out the photo above and look for more soon!
